Thankful for County workers

By Kay Gale
Greenlee County Administrator

In this time of thanksgiving, I want to express my thanks to a group of people that sometimes are the unsung heroes.

I’m talking about the employees that keep our historic courthouse beautiful. They take so much pride in making sure this 107-year-old building is here for another 100 years.

Greenlee County CourthouseI’m talking about the IT staff that responds to our demand that there is something wrong with the computers, the life blood of our daily existence.

I’m talking about the clerical staff in every office that make sure everything is running smoothly behind the scenes.

I’m talking about the dispatcher who takes that call in the middle of the night and makes sure a deputy gets safely to an emergency call.

I’m talking about that road crew worker that responds during the rain storms to make sure that our roads are safe.

I think you can see the pattern here. I’m thankful for the county employee.

I’m thankful to be a part of this great county and this “family.” We have so much to be thankful for in this great country, state and county.

During this season of thanksgiving, my hope is that each of us takes the time to recognize the everyday work that makes our lives in America the place that people around the world want for themselves.
